South University is a really amazing school and everyone is so friendly there. My professors always try to help out when they can, which I really appreciate. I graduated high school early so it has it's ups and downs. I'm glad I get to finish school early but I missed all of the end of the year senior fun. In the end I'll learn get to be a physician so it's ok.

It is a nice campus. Faculty are willing to see you succeed, from my experience. Classes are flexible with my schedule as well.
South University is a wonderful environment for adult students. They understand that along with trying to better our lives, we also may have children at home.
